Goatwhore - Grill 'Em All - promo band pic - 2014

Louisiana Metal miscreants, GOATWHORE, will celebrate the release of their mammoth Constricting Rage Of The Merciless full-length with a meet and greet next week at the world-famous Grill ‘Em All brick and mortar restaurant in Alhambra, California! The event will commence at 7:00 pm on Wednesday July 16th. Fans will get to hang with the band, hear the record in full as well as purchase a copy if they haven’t already. Additionally, Grill ‘Em All will add to the unholy revelry with special Constricting Rage Of The Merciless fries – Hand cut fries smothered in creole gumbo with chicken, smoked sausage, and shrimp! Come hungry.

On the following day in San Francisco, GOATWHORE will kick off a near month-long stretch of live incursions as part of The Summer Slaughter tour alongside Death Metal legends Morbid Angel, Dying Fetus, The Faceless, Fallujah and more!

Goatwhore - Constricting Rage Of The Merciless - promo cover

The band is currently slaying stages in support of Constricting Rage Of The Merciless, out TODAY on Metal Blade Records. Heaving forth ten mutinous tracks of thick, unadulterated, subterranean metal, Constricting Rage Of The Merciless isat once predatory, epic, misanthropic and sadistic. Inarguably GOATWHORE‘s most sonically consuming, meticulously executed manifestation of their catalog of chaos, the critical fuck yeahs from fans and media alike are literally flooding in. In an 8/10 score, Decibel Magazine crowns the record, “a blasphemous blast,” in a 9.5/10 rating, Dead Rhetoric christens it, “a masterful work of extreme metal,” while Headbangorgtfo.com dubs Constricting Rage Of The Merciless, “an instant classic,” awarding it a perfect 5/5.

Elsewhere, Metal Injection names it, the new high water mark of the group’s work thus far,” Planet Mosh commends GOATWHORE‘s seamless ability to fuse “everything from hyperspeed melodic black metal (reminiscent of underground guys like Noctuary), to thrash metal’s crunch, to death metal’s ‘kill first, ask questions later’ ethos,” furthering that, “polished, deliberate bayou evil permeates each well-crafted tune,” while Exclaim gushes in an 8/10 review, “GOATWHORE have always had the stench of brimstone about them, and their latest offering in no different, a vein of smoldering hatred for everything pure and good anchoring the record in a kind of ravenous decadence.” Killyourstereo agrees applauding, “an entirety evil and enticing record. The perfect use of vocal ranges from low and aggressive growls to higher notes further adds to the tone, while the dynamic changes and scattered guitar solos add some complexity.”

Posted in metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on June 20, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Denver Black Sky - promo festival flyer - 2014 - #1001

Earlier this week, DENVER BLACK SKY – set to take place August 2nd and 3rd at the Gothic Theatre and Moe’s BBQ – revealed on their official Facebook page plans to extend the lineup of their two-day, three-stage event with three additional acts. Wild speculation began almost immediately with fans throwing out the names of bands they dreamed to see and now the secret is out.

The doers of the event are pleased to welcome Mexican death grind perpetrators, Rottenness, who feature within their ranks Mile High City metal veteran Ben Pitts on vocals. The band will drag their own special brand of filthtified death metal to the DBS stage on Saturday.

Also making their way to the ceremony of chaos is Los Angeles powerviolence troupe Maladjusted whose female-empowered, vegan hardcore will only add more punk angst to an already crusty Sunday.

Finally, DENVER BLACK SKY welcomes iconic grindcore/crust combatants, Nausea, to their riotous bill. Born into the emotional wasteland known as Los Angeles, Nausea has been spreading their sonic disease since 1987 and will grace the stage Sunday evening.

_____________________________

Crowned “Colorado’s Best Metal Festival” by Denver Westword, the second edition of DENVER BLACK SKY features another vicious lineup that includes appearances by 908, ACxDC, Annul, Brutal Truth, Cannabis Corpse, Cattleist, Cephalic Carnage, Condemned Remains, Dead Temple, Doperunner, Early Graves, Ghosts of Glaciers, Gomorrah, In The Company Of Serpents, Khemmis, Municipal Waste, Nails, Noisem, North, Phobia, Resurrection, Scalafrea, Skinned, The Drip, The Xiphoid Process, Theories, Transient, Vale of Pnath, Wayfarer, Xibalba and Zombie Hate Brigade.

Tickets for DENVER BLACK SKY are on sale now at THIS LOCATION. $50 for two-day passes, $75 for VIP passes. VIP Packages include: Official limited DBS 2014 screen-printed poster, limited split 7″ featuring two sick DBS bands, VIP viewing area, Relapse Records bag of metal and admittance to the DBS pre-party at Black Sky Brewing August 1st – featuring very special surprise guests. Don’t slack. This will sell out!

2014 IS RAVEN’S 40th ANNIVERSARY!

RAVEN IS HEADLINING HEAVY SOUND FESTIVAL!

2014 IS THE REUNION OF HEAVY SOUND FESTIVAL, JUNE 7th, IN POPERINGE, BELGIUM!

_______________________________

Tickets: http://heavysoundfestival.bigcartel.com/product/tickets

_______________________________

HEAVY SOUND FESTIVAL – HISTORY:

The Heavy Sound Festival was a Heavy Metal/Hard Rock Festival back in the ’80s. The first edition took place in Bruges (Belgium), in 1983. The 2nd & 3rd moved to Poperinge for ’84 and ’85.

Bands – 1st edition:
Ostrogoth, Killer, Golden Earring, Viva, Baron Rojo, Warning, Uriah heep, Gary Moore…

Bands 2nd edition:
Motorhead, Twisted Sister, Metallica, H-bomb, Faithful Breath, Mercyful Fate, Lita Ford

Bands 3rd edition:
Pretty Maids, Slayer, UFO, Lee Aaron, Tokyo Blade, Warlock, Crossfire…

The festival was all about giving new upcoming bands the chance to be heard and some of them made it pretty far!

In 1985 there were some complaints about vandalism, never knew if this was true or just a rumor. Anyhow, the organizers thought it was better to just leave it as it was and stopped organizing the event.

It’s official that the heavy sound is totally back, with a new organization and the crew of the previous editions!!

ASKA – Confirmed As Friday Night Headliners For Warriors Of Metal Fest VII

Aska - promo band pic - 2014 - B&W - #36633

Cincinnati, Ohio – The Warriors of Metal, Inc. non-profit organization is very excited to welcome back the only band to headline the fest three years in a row. Dallas-based Traditional Metal professionals ASKA, who headlined in 2009, 2010 and 2011, has officially signed on as the Friday night headliner for our 7th annual Warriors Of Metal Fest. ASKA will be supporting their sixth studio album, Fire Eater which was released through Germany’s Pure Steel Records in September of last year.

The 7th annual Warriors of Metal Fest will be held June 27 – 28 at O’Shecky’s LIVE Bar & Grill in Columbus, Ohio.

Aska - Fire Eater - promo cover pic - 2013

Band founder, vocalist and guitarist, George Call states: “When we here at ASKA were approached by the brain trust about coming back to Warriors of Metal and headlining Friday’s portion of the fest I said, ‘Awesome! Who do we gotta kill?’ Not because we actually wanted to kill anyone but you get the sentiment right? After all, who wouldn’t want to get back to, perform for and hang out with those beloved portions of our extended metal family that the Warriors of Metal Fest has come to represent? See, WOM is not just a fest where we perform for fans but one in which we bleed, sweat, laugh and commune with our brothers and sisters of Metal. It really is one big family and the ‘blood’ that unites us is STEEL. And so it is with that sentiment that we look forward to this latest installment of the Warriors of Metal Festival, now indoors, come June – because just as much as you want to see ASKA, ASKA wants to see you. Dig? Hail and see you all at WOM Fest VII!”

The band’s official music video for the track “Dead Again” can be seen and heard below:

ASKA is brought back to Warriors of Metal Fest VII due to the generous fan sponsorships by Kit & Jen Ekman from Mobile, Alabama, brothers Edward and Mike Schmidt from Cleveland, Ohio, Dennis Schwan and Megan Stewart from Detroit, Michigan, and last but not least, Lance Souther & Laurie Rhodes from Dayton, Ohio. We are grateful for their contributions and constant support through the years.

Tickets are on sale and various levels of sponsorship opportunities are now available at the Fest’s website at www.warriorsofmetal.org.

Swedish Death Metal horde Diabolical have been confirmed for Bloodstock Festival 2014!

The band recently confirmed a string of tours which sees Diabolical campaign across Europe over the coming months in support of their latest album ‘Neogenesis. The band are currently on tour in UK with Svart Crown and Ascaris and if that doesn’t wet the appetites of the British metal contingent a return on August 7th-10th to Catton Park, Derby sure-fire will.

Bloodstock 2014 is shaping up to be one of, if not the biggest, Bloodstock yet. Last year, just prior to Lamb Of God’s Saturday headline show, the first headline act for Bloodstock 2014 was announced as revered black metal innovators Emperor and it was confirmed that the festival would play host to the one and only 2014 UK Emperor performance. Also confirmed are Megadeth, Down, Carcass, Amon Amarth, Saxon, Children Of Bodom, Hatebreed, Obituary, Lacuna Coil, Crowbar, Prong and many, many more.
